爱莲朵娜城堡 (Eilean Donan Castle) - 一个华丽浪漫的13世纪城堡，在历史上曾经阻止了维京人入侵。城堡曾作为电影007系列《黑日危机》中军机处的取景地，据说在城堡前接吻爱情可以天长地久。
格伦科 (Glen Coe) - 苏格兰高地上最迷人的地貌，美国国家地理杂志的拍摄线路，电影007系列《大破杀幕天机》中，邦德曾开着阿斯顿马丁从格伦科谷驰骋而过。
奎雷英山口 (Quiraing Mountain Pass) - 天空岛上最雄伟壮阔的景点，这是一座高达37米的锯齿状山峰，著名的科幻电影《普罗米修斯》就曾在这里取景，也让天空岛被誉为“翼之岛”。
五姐妹山 (Five Sisters of Kintail) - 传说中五个苏格兰姐妹等着爱尔兰的的未婚夫来迎娶，却迟迟没有等到，她们死后，当地的巫师为了让她们的美丽永远留住，就将她们变成了现在的这五座山。
尼斯湖 (Loch Ness) - 尼斯湖的储水量比英格兰和威尔士所有湖泊相加还要多，大概也是因为这样才让水怪得以藏身
在这趟旅程中，您将有三天的时间来探索天空岛美丽的景点，浪漫的故事，保存完整的盖尔文化和秘密。 您的旅程将从爱丁堡向北行驶，经过苏格兰的中心，了解到苏格兰和英格兰之间的战斗历史。 穿过斯凯桥后您将到达这座与陆地隔绝的岛屿，旅途中您将看到激发了无数神话和传说的迷人美景和神奇地貌。晚上您将入住岛上可爱的小镇波特里（Portree），傍晚时分可以漫步在苏格兰的北海边，欣赏美丽的海景。
学生, 60岁以上的老人, 5到15岁之间的儿童 (非常抱歉，我们无法携带5岁以下的孩童)
您将在早上08：30离开爱丁堡，乘坐Rabbie’s的豪华小型客车向西行驶。这一部分旅程特别适合对苏格兰历史感兴趣的乘客。您将逐一经过林利斯戈宫（Linlithgow Palace），斯特灵城堡，华莱士纪念碑和杜恩城堡（Castle Doune）（《巨蟒与圣杯》《古战场传奇》《权利的游戏》等取景地），并在卡伦德（Callander）小镇稍作休息。您的冒险将由此继续向北，经过Lubnaig湖周围壮观的风景和兰诺克沼地（Rannoch Moor）的荒野，而高地的景色从这里只会变得更加美丽。
您的旅程将沿着A82号公路前行，通过壮丽的格伦科谷，这里是A82公路途中最美的一段，也是007影片Skyfall的取景地之一，景色苍凉而豪迈。1692年的麦克唐纳（Macdonald）大屠杀在此发生，也令这一景色诡异的山谷凭添了更多别样氛围，格伦科自此也被称为垂泪的山谷（Valley of Weeping）。
午饭后离开威廉堡您将经过英国的最高的山，本尼维斯（Ben Nevis）。继续在“通往小岛的路上”向西行驶，您将经过五姐妹山，充分领略苏格兰高地让人窒息的绝色美景。然后，您可以停下来参观华丽的爱莲朵娜城堡，这是苏格兰最著名的城堡之一。穿过斯凯桥（Skye Bridge）就到达天空岛了，司机将顺着逶迤的海岸线向北朝着小岛的首都波特里行驶。在经过无数令人叹为观止的美丽后，您将到达海滨小镇波特里，在入住登记后，您还有足够的时间出去探索这个城市。
天在天空岛上的行程相对比较灵活，根据天气情况会有不同的可能性。我们的司机/导游将用他们的丰富的经验和专业知识带您度过美好的一天。 波特里北部是绵延的Trotternish山脊与其壮观的悬崖和岩层，老人峰（Old Man of Storr ）就坐落在Trotternish 的山脚下。"Storr"来自于挪威语，意思是伟大的人。老人峰是整个天空岛最为知名的景色，前几年全英风光摄影比赛的第一名所拍摄的主题就是老人峰。苏格兰裙边悬崖在天空岛的最北处，因为形状有些像苏格兰格子裙而出名。这里有高耸的悬崖，壮丽的瀑布和广阔无边的大海，让您充分感受到海边悬崖的魅力。奎雷英山口的锯齿山峰，也让天空岛被赋予“翼之岛”的美名。而天空岛西部的风景又和北部的壮观有些许不同，在悬崖边的内斯特角灯塔（Neist Point）被誉为世界最美丽的十座灯塔之一，如果幸运，您还可以看见海豚，鲨鱼和鲸鱼。邓韦根城堡是传说中苏格兰最古老的城堡，它从13世纪起就矗立在海边的，保卫着斯凯岛。麦克劳德家族最有名的就是家族的仙女旗（Fairy Flag）了，相传这神圣的旗帜有神奇的力量，当在战斗中迎风招展时，居住在城堡里的军队就能打败他们的敌人。
Okay, apologies that this is written 11 months after our tour to Skye last June! This tribute or heartfelt thank you note should have been sent last year (2019) in June, when it was my good fortune to have Iain Farrell as my/our tour guide on our few days out to Skye from Glasgow! Mr. Farrell is everything one could ask for in a tour guide! An absolutely super-knowledgeable mind and soul. A deep man, a kind man, a thoughtful man, a sharing-of-wonderful-stories-and-knowledge man! We found ourselves (my wife, 12-year-old daughter, and me) looking forward to each outing and time spent in the bus learning about this fantastic land (Scotland), about the Highlands, geology, biology, and history! Iain is a delightful, funny, and sweet gentleman – a perfect ambassador to share Scottish culture and folklore. He also had wonderful and appropriately selected music for us to listen to at different stages of our tour, which alas was too short (3 days if I recall). An absolute delight was listening to how he prepared us for each of the sights along the way by a sweetly constructed narrative of some historical fact of relevance. I am 59 years old! I have NEVER had a tour guide whom I liked as much and who has made such a positive impression on me as Iain did. My regret: I didn’t let him know this. I meant to write a note at the Rabbie’s site right after I got back to Austin, Texas but never did. Now, in these bizarre covid-19 virus days, I am slowing down and thinking about everything a bit more. And I thought to post this note or ask someone at Rabbie’s to share this with Iain (I’m not any social media platform). I’m guessing that Rabbie’s tours are on hold these days. I hope Iain and all you fine folks at Rabbie’s are hanging in there and will survive these times. Thank you, Iain. Be well. – Lexie, Cecilia and Lance from Austin, Texas
Had a great time on the 3 day tour of Isle of Skye! Our driver/guide, Catty, was amazing - her knowledge of the history and stories to go with them were endless. Made the trip so much fun and interesting. The BB in Portree, the Portree Guest House, could use a little TLC in some areas but was still comfortable. Thank you Catty for an unforgettable trip!
To me personally travelling means traversing not only three dimensional geographic space, but traversing the single dimension of time. Rabbies are doing an excellent job in bringing closer the unique subjective experience of four dimensional continuum into travelers lives. Dave Fletcher, our friendly, hospitable, welcoming guide whisked us safely through 500 odd miles of Scottish geographic space, introduced us to the most picturesque spots and breath taking views of his homelands landscape. Though not travelling at the speed of light in his “ Rabbies space shuttle” , Dave helped me to pause, reflect upon and slow down a bit more, the flow of my holiday time amassed away from the mundane routine of Londons rat race. Thanks to Daves engaging storytelling, we travelled back through centuries of Scottish abundant, historical landscape. He introduced us to Highlands cultural heritage, local communities and the centuries of team work, helpfulness and hospitality ingrained into the local cultural landscape as a matter of survival. Culture of any spacetime reflects ancestral experience gained on that journey through millenia of time dimension passed through that particular territory. It helps us grasp who we are and where we are going. And at the same time ancient legends of Highland clans act as Memento Morris, a reminder for a modern traveller to never underestimate the dangers of the wilderness and void of Scottish mountains. I felt that Rabbies tours play a pivotal role in the preservation of unique and varied identities and to fend them from Kelpies of globalisation. To explore different cultures, contribute to local communities, observe, learn and preserve the uniqueness of their experience nowadays becomes more important than ever. Many thanks Dave, for your help to make me understand how the Scottish universe works on the big and small level. It was a very enriching experience indeed. Thank You also from Alpana and Riz.
Gav was an excellent guide. He has great instincts on timing and on reading the group dynamic. We were hesitant about signing up for a group tour (we’re introverts) but we were grateful for Gav’s driving skills, insider knowledge, and for the overall carefree (and unforgettable) experience.
How fortunate to have been assigned the Isle of Skye tour with Ross, a Master Storyteller with a quick wit and the patience of a saint. As we were transported back in time through the Highlands on our way to Skye, Ross mesmerized us with tales of Scotlands glacial birth and turbulent past. The Highlands are simply stunning and this tour gave us the comfort and time to enjoy its splendour. The lodgings arranged by Rabbies were wonderful. I really enjoyed the hospitality shown and the full Scottish breakfast. Rosss mission was to enlighten with humour, one tour at a time, all things Scottish. The tartan story just one reason a tour can dispel old notions. Best of all, Rosss love for Scotland is evident in the music he assembled for his narrative and in his passion in revealing this place he calls home.
My kids and I recently went on the 3-day Isle of Skye and Highlands Tour. We loved every second of it! Not only did we luck out with picture-perfect weather all three days, but we hit the jackpot with our guide, Mackenzie (Mac). Mac made this trip, hands down. From the moment he greeted us wearing a kilt at the pick up stop in Edinburgh to the minute he dropped us off 3 days later, also wearing a kilt, he made sure to entertain us with fantastic tales of Scottish history, witty comments about what we were seeing as we passed miles and miles of open spaces, and stories about men in kilts and why kilts are so cool. He also shared tips about where to eat and where to avoid. Mac went out of his way to make the trip extra special with some fun surprises that werent on the itinerary like a picnic lunch one day vs. going to a restaurant. I could tell he really loves being a guide and I think this photo of him with our group tells the whole story. We are already talking about our next trip to Scotland and which Rabbies tour we want to do next. Again, a huge shout out to Mac for being the best Scottish guide ever! We absolutely loved this part of our holiday.
This was our first group tour and we chose Rabbies because of all the positive reviews we had read on different websites. The tour exceeded our expectations, from the comfortable coach to the worry free accommodations that were made for us, and of course the spectacular sights along the way. What made the tour truly outstanding was our guide, Charlie. He was so enthusiastic, knowledgeable, warm and fun we couldnt have had a better experience.
Took the tour and was impressed with the knowledge that CATTY had and gave us once we were out of Edinburgh. We got a see a Hairy Que Lealt and Mealt falls The Stevenson lighthouse - lots of steps Going on the Turntable ferry was quite an experience The Isle of SKYE is amazing. The SYKE Hideaway was a very comfortable BB Appreciated the various stops along the way including seeing Ben Nevis - - - would have been willing to leave earlier to be able to see Sterling Castle at a closer distance
A great three day trip with superb weather to see some truly amazing places in the Highlands and the Isle of Skye. Sharon was a great host/driver and guide. The stories of the history and legends of the Highlands, that she shared with us, made the trip that much more memorable. We truly felt her passion and commitment to making the trip an incredible experience for us. She did this while also managing a challenging dynamic with some members of our tour, who did not behave very respectfully. Well done Sharon, you are a true professional. Because of you, we will not hesitate to go on another Rabbies tour In the future and will be recommending to all our Canadian friends who are planning to travel to the UK and Ireland. Cheers.
We had such a great time with Rabbies this past weekend. Definitely would go again. Adam was an incredible guide.

The UK and Ireland's historic city centres are full of narrow streets and winding roads. So, to speed up your departure, we only pick up from our central meeting points. What's more is leaving the city using the most direct route also reduces the carbon footprint of our tours.
We don't recommend bringing your car into the centre of our departure cities. It can be hard to find parking, and there are excellent public transportation services.
Arrive 15 minutes before your departure time. Due to waiting restrictions, we can't wait for you if you're late.
If you're late for your tour, our cancellation policy applies.
We have a cancellation period of 48 hours for our one day tours, 15 days for two to nine day tours, and 21 days for 10+ day tours. If cancelled outside this period, we'll give you a full refund minus a 10% admin charge. If you cancel inside this period, refunds are at our discretion. Click here to view full terms and conditions.
It's simple: you book, you go. This means we'll never cancel your tour because of a minimum numbers policy.
Due to logistical reasons, we're unable to let you pre-book a seat on the bus. But our comfortable 16-seat mini-coaches have huge windows. So, you'll always get a good view.
Unfortunately, we have no on-board toilet facilities, but you'll have regular comfort breaks.
We aim to accommodate everyone. To read more information on how we do this, click here to go to our accessibility guide.
We regret we don't carry children under the age of five on our scheduled tours.
You can ask us about the tours we recommend for younger children. And if your child is less than 1.35m tall, you should let us know, so we can provide them with a suitable booster seat.
We want you to enjoy Britain and Ireland. And we believe the best way to do this is to get you off the mini-coach and out exploring. So, we give you plenty of time to take photos, go walking, and explore ancient ruins.
We exclude visitor attractions in your tour price because it lets you travel your way. It means you can pamper yourself with a luxury lunch or skip an attraction whenever you feel like it.
You don't need to. We stop in small towns, villages, and rural eateries where you can choose whatever meal pleases both your taste buds and your budget.
Let's be honest, our driver-guides would never refuse a cheeky bonus. But it's up to you, and the amount is entirely at your discretion.
We advise you take out travel insurance.
You're protected by ABTOT when you chose to let us reserve your accommodation on a multi-day tour. This means you can claim back anything you've paid us if we become bankrupt. Read our terms and conditions for more information.
